Sheffield’s first annual digital conference

Sheffield’s first annual digital conference

Sheffield held its first annual digital conference at the Electric Works on 15th November 2017. It is an opportunity for Sheffield’s digital community to come together and learn more about the plans for the digital coalition (dotSHF) and the domain model that we will use to frame all of our work in the coming months and years.

The conference helped to set out and asked for people’s views on our ambitions for the city in relation to the city’s economy, infrastructure, governance, mobility, living, people and resources (the 7 domains). We heard from a number of speakers addressing the challenges and opportunities in each of these areas. Each domain has a Trello board on to which we would encourage you to contact us with your contributions

Speakers included colleagues from The Good Things Foundation (People), the Advanced Wellbeing and Research Centre (Living), Sheffield Digital (Economy), Sheffield City Council (Governance), University of Sheffield (Mobility), Sheffield Hallam University and Arup (Infrastructure) and the Urban Flows Observatory (Resources).

We’re keen to use the conference and the related policy sessions, as a way of engaging with Sheffield’s digital community and to help us shape this agenda going forward. Further details will be announced as available.

We plan for the conference to be annual event, updating interested parties on the work of dotSHF, our achievements and the work of the 7 domains.

We look forward to seeing you at our 2018 conference.
